Forum: etree Subject: Best China Cat Sunflower Live Version -- Identification, track included

Greetings fellow heads,

I hope you are all well!

My name is Carl and I have a version of the China Cat Sunflower song I feel is THE DEFINITIVE live version. Please have a listen; I have attached the link stream below from my private collection. Here's the catch: I dont know from what live performance it is from, and Ive been looking for over 7 years. People say its from Dicks Picks #4. Although close, it still bares musical differences. If anyone can help me identify the show this is played from, I would be forever grateful. Thank you so much and enjoy the song.

Hey Carl, you might check out http://headyversion.com/ and see if it's in the listed there. This site lists the "best" live versions of the various Dead songs, as voted on by the people. There are links back to the Archive.org shows, so you can do a quick side-by-side comparison. If it's truly the definitive live version, I bet someone has posted it there with a link out to the full show here on Archive.org.

I'll have a listen a bit later and see if I can help, but if not, hopefully something on Headyversion will get you closer.

Good luck!

** Edit **
From listening to your sample, I'd say it's early 70's...maybe 73/74, possibly earlier. But I'm no expert, so I reserve the right to be wrong!
